There has been a bit of a festive tradition here at TES Maths. Around this time of year, a game/activity usually appears on my radar that goes on to become an essential ingredient of those final few lesson leading up to Christmas.
2012 saw the arrival of The Pirate Game. My students still talk about it. I still bear the scars.
2013 brought with it The Lobster Game, which combined probability, accountancy, tactics and, in the case of my Year 11s, a fair amount of praying.
So, what will be the game to dominate Christmas 2014? I am looking for something simple, with an element of maths in there, which can enthuse even the most reluctant.
I am planning on recording my final Resource of the Week video on this on Sunday 14th December, so replies via the comments section before then please.
